Damn what anyone says, never let your heart harden! One of our Core Goals is to spread a message of courage, love, empathy, and the willingness to stand true to your principles, even when the World is seemingly at your gates telling you to stop and be quiet.
The truth is, going forward, our species will need people with sharp minds and big hearts; hearts that are weathered and leathery enough to not wilt under duress or criticism, but still hopeful and open enough to yearn to do some Good in the World. Individually, the Sea Family might not be able to turn things around, but our followers can! This is why we teach!
You’re all young and malleable enough to tune your critical thinking skills, learn about world politics, why certain laws get passed —or ignored— and take the proper steps to be real agents of change! If some of you are able to glean enough from what we say to become politicians, teachers, or otherwise keep that message unbroken, the blog and all of us could disappear completely and we’ll be content knowing that we spent our time doing something meaningful!
There’s nothing wrong with caring, there’s nothing wrong with you, and there’s nothing wrong with crying right now; I can understand how that would be one’s reaction if they were too young to have any significant agency to act about it, but you have to remember too that talking about it IS acting!
Stay hopeful and don’t cry too much! The Winds of Change are blowing and there is still a federal case impending, too. Justice may still be served!
